The Goldsmith's Wife book. Eighteen year old Jane Shore's beauty is known around London. Although I love Jean Plaidy and thoroughly enjoy her writing style, this book is not one of her best.

I understand that this is an older book, but I don’t care for the way Jane Shore is portrayed in this novel.

Jane Shore is a lovely woman. Intelligent, sweet, caring and lonely. Her father basically sells her off to Will Shore whom she doesn't love. He showers her with affection, but it doesn't matter, she cannot love him. She catches the eye of William Hastings, the king's best friend. But she wants nothing to do with him and swears she will be no man's mistress.

This oath comes to nothing as she is swept up by Edward IV and into his courtly world. She comes to love and understand him. She knows how to hold her place, much like Queen Elizabeth does. She stays with him through the very end of his life.

After his death her life takes a series of turns from high, eventually becoming the mistress of Hastings, who she does fall in love with, to prison and eventually the lowest, a begger in the streets.

I felt this was a different Plaidy than normal. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but this book at times felt stiff to me. Not as fluid and informative as her other books are. I felt like the characters, while interesting, were blocky and they didn't progress. Everyone came into the story however they were and they never really changed. It's a good story, but I felt like more could have been done with the characters.

An engagingly written dramatic novel about the life of Jane Shore, who was born and grew up in Cheapside, London before being married by her father to a goldsmith, William Shore.

Jane is saucy, wilful, passionate, exquisitely beautiful and with a heart of gold.
She is wooed by King Edward IV in disguise and becomes his favoured mistress. Her compassion for the poor of London and her forgiving nature prove her as a saint.
The death of Edward and the power of King Richard leads her into being drawn into intrigues by her passion for Thomas Grey, 1st Marquess of Dorset and also becomes the mistress William Hastings, 1st Baron Hastings.
Shore outlines her view of the relationship of mistress Shore to these men.
After the fall of Hastings, Jane is forced to do a cruel penance of being walking through London in a procession, dressed only in a kirtle and carrying a taper, to St Paul's cross, watched by ogling men and jeering crowds.
She was then imprisoned in the ghastly Ludgate prison in London.
As we follow the life of a phenomenal and engaging woman, who it is impossible not to feel the utmost sympathy for, we get a real window into medieval London.
Plaidy uses the novel also to put forward her theory that the princes in the tower, Edward and Richard, were not killed on the orders of Richard III, but on the orders of Henry Tudor (Henry VII) after he took the throne.
